L to R: Midshipman Korrey King, Cadet Candidate (CC) Andrew Salies
Monroe, GA – Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today announced that two Henry County High School graduates have earned Fully Qualified Offers of Appointment to U.S. Service Academies. Korrey King and Andrew Salies graduated from Henry County High School in 2016 and went on to attend the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) and the United States Military Academy Preparatory School (or West Point Prep), respectively. Both young men will enter the Class of 2021 – Korrey as a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland and Andrew as a cadet at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
“It is my honor to extend congratulations to Korrey and Andrew, two exceptional young men from the 10th Congressional District who have distinguished themselves as leaders,” said Congressman Hice. “Both exemplify the highest attributes of character, scholarship, and patriotism. It was a privilege to nominate them, and it gives me great confidence knowing they will one day be officers in America’s Armed Forces.”
Korrey graduated from the NAPS on Friday, May 12th, and Andrew will graduate from West Point Prep on Saturday, May 20th. Both schools prepared them for the academic, physical, and military challenges of their respective service academies. With academy appointments, they will receive a full scholarship – to include room, board, tuition, health care, and a stipend – and upon graduation, they will be commissioned officers in the United States Armed Forces.
